Two out of every three beaches in Brazil have some degree of contamination that endangers the health of millions of tourists, according to a new study that located traditional areas such as Ipanema or Leblon, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, among which they are not suitable for the bathroom most of the year.
The study explains that part of this sector suffers the consequences of receiving two drains located in the exclusive southern area of the main Brazilian tourist city.
Industrial and other wastes are dumped into the canals, which pollute the waters of the beaches.
Botafogo and Flamengo, from where you have a privileged view of the Pan de Azúcar hill, are the ones that have the most polluted waters in Rio, since they receive sewage waste.
